Engineers love data, but when it comes to the technological revolution of drone usage, information overload can be overwhelming. “There’s a flood of information out there,” says Dennis Kemmesat, founder and CEO of Frontier Precision. “At first everyone wanted to get a drone to see what it can do. But you need to be sure you’re getting the right one for your needs. You can find all kinds of data about the various types of drones and instrumentation, but what customers really need is the answer to the question, ‘What can it do for me?”

Frontier Precision Unmanned specializes in answering that question to its customers all across the country. Businesses are seeing a return on their investmentin drones as they’re being used for data collection, asset inspection, and much more. “We’ve moved far beyond the idea that drones are novelties used by hobbyists,” says Kemmesat. “Their applications across a wide range of industries are almost limitless. We’ve worked with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) on multiple projects using drones.” One recent project was a study of the Cherry Creek Dam near Denver, Colorado. Data for the study was collected with an M600 UAS platform and a Yellowscan VX20 LiDAR sensor flying 200 feet high at about 8.5 miles per hour. USACE had original spillway construction information and this data was used to calculate volumes of the amount of material needing to be dredged.
